Shenmue, Yokosuka, real life places & interview with spot guide map co-creator Ms. Eriko Furusaki
Last month I went to Yokosuka in Kanagawa prefecture and also visited Dobuita street. If you familiar with Shenmue (a video game from 1999 for the SEGA Dreamcast) then you know what I am talking about. Yu Suzuki, the creative director behind this game used names and specific places from Yokosuka in Kanagawa prefecture as insperation for Shenmue (chapter 1). Now 19 years later a person, who likes and play video games and also work for the city of Yokosuka tourism department, had the idea to bring out a guide that takes you to all these places in real! We met that person and talked about this guide map and the story behind it creation.
Today was the last day for Demon's Souls to have it's online features. With shutting down the servers, the great era of unique onlineplay going to an end. After 9 years I finally managed to finish my first playthru and put this beast to sleep.

Yesterday was a Retro-Games-Market in Bochum where I got some completion to my collection, since there still some games missing. It was a hell rainy day, but in the end it was worth it for me to go there. ----> Sexy Parodius! Finally!!!
